Loadshedding suspended from 10pm on Saturday, Eskom announces
Loadshedding will be suspended between 10pm on Saturday and 5pm on Sunday, Eskom announced on Saturday evening.
It will then be reintroduced at stage 1 for five hours until 10pm on Sunday. This is to allow for the replenishment of emergency reserves to prepare for the coming week, said an Eskom statement.
